The Elevators have been in use in Orthopaedic wards for over twenty years and are used in many hospitals in Australia and overseas. They can help reduce or even prevent swelling in the leg. The Patient’s leg rests on a convoluted surface. The convolutions can help blood flow and help avoid deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
To Use: Simply place under the leg. The foot will be raised about 40 cm. in the Elevator depending on the length of the patient’s leg. The Elevator has side walls to help prevent the leg from rolling off the sides. If the patient has a plaster cast, some sharp ‘edges’ or ‘dags’ on the outside of the plaster cast may damage the cover of the Elevator, so we recommend placing a small towel on the Elevator under the cast to give some protection to the cover. If the patient’s leg needs to be bent or flexed a rolled-up towel can be placed under their knee.
